Guitarist Christian Andreu from French heavy metal band Gojira has produced one of the most metal moments of 2019.

The band were performing when a strong wind gust blew flame straight into Andreu's face, which resulted in him leaving the stage immediately. See the clip below:

Thankfully, Andreu's burns were 'minor' and he was able to return to the stage like an absolute boss and finish his set. Blythe report the guitarist had his eyes closed at the time. 

In between songs he walked over and asked for water and threw it on his face. Then he finished the set and medics attended to him.

Lamb Of God frontman Randy Blythe saw the whole thing from side of the stage, and  called Andreu “the hardest Frenchman alive” on Instagram. We can't disagree.
